However, he claimed the silver medal as part of Britain’s 4 × 400 metres relay team with a time of 3:07.04. Following the competition, he suffered a knee injury which ruled him out of competition for six weeks.

His 2008 indoor season started well, with a win at the Norwich Union international match in Glasgow the 400 m, helping to secure a win for Great Britain.
